An unplanned pregnancy can be an emotionally difficult situation for any mother, especially if the mother is concerned with how she will care for her child. Depending on the circumstances, some mothers may find themselves dealing with Child Protective Services (CPS) soon after their baby’s birth. While you want the very best for your baby, there is a difference between having your baby taken away and being raised in the foster care system and voluntarily placing your baby for adoption.
At A is 4 Adoption, we do our very best to work with birth mothers from all backgrounds across California to ensure that their babies have the best possible chance at a happy and healthy life. We understand that the adoption process can be difficult and emotional, which is why we offer unwavering support for all of our birth mothers. When you work with us, not only will you have a say in the family who chooses to adopt your baby, but you can also receive the care and support you need during your pregnancy. Explore our website or contact us via phone or text to learn more about the services we offer. In the meantime, continue reading below to learn more about how placing your baby for adoption could be a better option than dealing with CPS.
You Take Control
When CPS becomes involved in your life, it is because they are involuntarily taking your baby away. However, when you choose to create an adoption plan and place your baby for adoption, you are the one who is in control. Instead of letting CPS choose what family is best for your child, you have the option of being completely involved in who will ultimately raise the baby.
Once CPS takes your baby away, you don’t have the option to get involved and help your baby find a good home. For this reason, many birth mothers prefer creating an adoption plan, especially if they know they can’t provide their baby with everything they will need. Choosing to voluntarily place your baby for adoption gives you a greater ability to ensure your child will have a wonderful life in a loving home.
You Choose the Family
Babies who are removed from a home by CPS are placed into the foster care system, which allows registered foster parents to take home and care for the baby. The child may stay with the foster family for an extended time before finding a forever home.
By placing your baby for adoption, you eliminate the time between birth and finding a forever home for your child. You ensure a forever home for your child from the beginning by choosing who your baby’s parents will be. When you work with an adoption center such as A is 4 Adoption, you are in control of the adoption process. Instead of us choosing who adopts your baby without your say, our team works very closely with you to ensure that you are happy with your baby’s adoptive family. In fact, we sit down with you and ask you about the desires you have for your baby’s family and the life you want to create for your child. Once we know your desires, we allow you to look through the applications and pick the family that you believe is the right fit for your baby.
You Have the Option of Being a Part of Your Baby’s Life
One of the benefits of placing your baby for adoption through an adoption center is that you have the option of being a part of your baby’s life. If this is your desire, we will show you only families who are open to this level of contact after birth. As the birth mother, you may know that you won’t be able to provide for your baby the way they need, but that doesn’t mean that you don’t want to be a part of your baby’s life. When CPS takes your baby away, it is very rare that they allow you visitation privileges.
When you work with A is 4 Adoption, we do our very best to help you feel comfortable with your decision, whether that means providing you with financial care and support during pregnancy, the chance to be included when choosing the adoptive parents, or the opportunity to see your baby in the future.
